if anybody wants to give me grief about why i’m wearing brown shoes and socks with black pants, i’ll bust them up. my powerbook kept losing power recently and i thought the receptacle on the computer was going kaput… at least that’s what i thought until i woke up today and tried unplugging and reinserting the power cord, and as soon as i unplugged it orange sparks and smoke started to pour from the power cord. yep. unplugged that and will have to take it to the apple store after today’s oboe business. having a near-electocution experience does not put folks in the right mindset for having their shoes match their pants.
